    My journey to getting well

    I feel the same as I have the last couple of mornings. Energy levels and strength levels are OK. They could be better though. As previously mentioned I'm guessing it will take one to two weeks of avoiding nightshade/spices, chicken for me to see a return to high energy and strength levels...

    My journey to getting well

    Rather boring day. Doing well outside of that. I do suspect that I am feeling stronger. My energy levels are decent. Already dreaming of adding plain chicken or plain beef to the diet to see how I react. I better wait will after my dental appointment to try that though, which I believe that...

    My journey to getting well

    I have felt more energetic, stronger today. So going back onto the fish diet is doing me good. It is so wonderful to finally have a safe diet that i can always return to. Something curious happened today. I didn't note down ealier but one issue I've had is my feet will become overly stiff...

    My journey to getting well

    Avoiding chicken nuggets does have me feeling more energetic and stronger this morning. It is always difficult to say for certain on these things but do believe I'm doing better with those two areas. I'll of course have a better idea within a week or two if avoiding chicken nuggets works best...

    My journey to getting well

    Thinking about it, I'm going to go back to avoiding spices/nightshade. I'll see if my energy and strength goes to a higher level. Ever since I added chicken nuggets back into the diet, my energy and strength has decreased. I'll give it a week or two to see if my strength goes back up higher...

    My journey to getting well

    I'm pretty tired and worn out today. I'm going to be less active the next few days to see if I can have more energy, feel stronger. With that said, it was an OK day. I've been worse

    My journey to getting well

    Appearance is healthy. Strength is poor this morning. I'm not completely weak but I'm not as strong as I've been in the recent past. Gut is usual. Withstrength here os late I've stopped eating snacks, mostly. The less food eaten I'm guessing has resulted in being weaker. That is my guess...

    My journey to getting well

    I'm going to go back to a more strict fish diet. Don't have good reasons for this but since the cooler weather came into the area I'm less energy and less strong. Most likely it is not diet related but you never know. So going back to the fish diet will be easy for me to do and I'll see how I...

    My journey to getting well

    doing alright this morning. It is warmer but the cold still has zapped my energy levels. I have better than normal energy but I'm feeling a bit worn down. Gut OK. Skin looks good and healthy. Skin does not itch avoiding cheese all together has helped with that. I'll keep avoiding beef...

    My journey to getting well

    This is one of those things that is hard to quantify but it is something I've noticed in the past and now notice it of late. When I'm healthier I look healthier. My appearance changes some. It is a bit odd in that suddenly when healthier I begin to get more attention from others. It happens...

    Thanks Delta, it is a bit odd but things are looking up for me health wise, though going through one of the worst hurricanes to strike America wasn't enjoyable.

    My journey to getting well

    New - my knuckles hurt just a bit. Nothing big but I notice they are feeling stiff this morning. I'm guessing this is due to eating chicken nuggets 2 days in a row. I've noticed in the past that my joints hurt after eating spicy foods. So I'll go back onto the fish diet. Imagine within a...

    Something else that I have brought up before, but forget to update. I used to live in Florida as a kid. Before that I lived in California. During that time I had upset stomachs but nothing all that serious. It wasn't till I moved chilly Illinois that soon after I developed upset stomaches...

    My journey to getting well

    I was chuckling to myself as i woke up with a mild upset stomach and was wondering what caused that. It wasn't till I remembered as I wrote down that I was hungry last night. I ended up eating a bunch of nuts and that will do it. That will cause a mild upset stomach. Overall doing well...
